Pretty sure my pediatrician cringes when he sees us in his appointments.

We had well checks today for both Hollywood and Captain Chaos.

Hollywood did great. Everything looks good. She politely answered all questions. She passed her hearing and vision screening. No scoliosis. Good.

Captain Chaos? How about some conversational snippets?


<Dr. NiceGuy is listening to Chaos’ heart and lungs.>

Chaos: I have a little booty.

Dr. N: Mmmmm-hmmm.

Chaos: You have a big booty, huh?

Dr. N: relatively speaking, I suppose so.


Dr. N: Can you name any of your body parts?

<Mommy is violently shaking her head>

Chaos <excited to know the answer, points to chest>: These are my nipples!

Dr. N: Okaaaaaaaay. Any others?

Chaos: Ummmmmm. No.

<Mommy holds head in hands>


Chaos: Uh-oh. Potty!

<Mommy snatches Chaos up and races down the hall past nurses desk to bathroom>

Chaos: My underpants are wet.

<Mommy grabs a paper used for the changing table and wraps it around Chaos to walk back to exam room>

<Chaos walks back down the hall. Notices nurses watching him.>

Chaos <while waggling his booty>: You like mah skirt?

<Nurses erupt into hysterics. Mommy looks for a hole to crawl into.>


Thank goodness we only have to go once a year for well-checks. He’s not usually as “funny” when we go for a sick visit. For the record, Chaos knows lots of body parts, he doesn’t own any skirts, and every time we have the booty conversation at home I remind him that’s it’s not nice to talk about other people’s bootys. Or their size. You know, just for the record.

  6. Co-Pilot Mom says:

    Hilarious! They really say the funniest things sometimes!

  7. Happy SITS day. Those are PRICELESS. Oh GOD. When the doctor asked Sam a similar question, he replied, “My penis is my best part”. And my Sam does own several skirts. At five, his primary ambition in life is to be his big sister when he grows up still, so he has no problem dressing up like a girl.

  16. thebusymomsdiet says:

    Hahaahaha! This was too funny. I really can’t get enough stories about funny things kids say!

  17. Kim says:

    Oh kids, aren’t they just darling 😉 As someone who gets embarrassed extremely easily, my children have made my face go red on numerous occasions. At least you can get a chuckle out of the situation once you are out of the ‘heat’ of the moment. And they make great blog posts too 😉 Enjoy your SITS day today!

  18. Gotta love those cringeworthy moments!

  19. lyzamay says:

    So adorable, I always wished i would keep a journal of all the wonderful things that my daughter has done/said. I always think I’ll remember, but we can’t remember everything can we?

  20. They are ADORABLE! Out of the mouth of babes, right? HAPPY SITS DAY!

  21. {Kathy} My husband is a Pediatrician. We pretty much hear things that come out of kids’ mouthes on a daily basis around our dinner table. These comments are TAME compared to most that I have heard! Consider yourself lucky!

  22. buhle says:

    LOL. Gotta love little ones. Great story. Happy SITS day!

  23. The post was very funny! O course, all that was probably not quite so funny at the time for you! But you can tease Captain Chaos for the rest of his life with stories like these!

  24. Jean Lynd says:

    Oh, that’s funny! I love the randomness of kids. Maybe that’s why I have 4 of them?!?!

  25. I can just imagine sharing this post with future girlfriends. Very funny.

  26. Those are hysterical! Kids are so funny, and unedited! I’m stopping by from SITS! Happy SITS Day to you! I’d love for you to stop by and say hello. You can link up some scrapbook creations next week. 🙂

  27. So cute! I’m sure the dr loved it – a memorable patient for sure 🙂

    Visiting from SITS… love your blog!

    LOLOL!!! too funny! There is never a hole big enough to crawl into when kids are really being Happy SITS DAy!

  30. HILARIOUS! I have to say, Booty is my 3-year-old’s new favorite word…trying to redirect the phrase to bottom, but it seems to be sticking 😉

  31. Dorothy says:

    You think Chaos should have a blog too?! Yayy for SITS bloggers!
